When in Cebu, you might heard of the word Larsian. It is one of Cebu’s popular eating havens. Located along a nameless road adjacent to Don Gil Garcia street near the Fuente Osmeña in Cebu City. It is a place for barbecue lovers. Larsian is a collection of stalls which virtually serve the same thing, grilled meats and seafood. Since it has many stalls, competition is really tight. Upon entering the said place, several vendors would scream at you just to get your attention and convince you to eat at their stall. You would become like a celebrity for a short while where vendors are like fans screaming for your attention.
Pick what you want…
Puso – rice wrapped in coco leaves and boiled.
When eating in here, you will just be given a plate covered in plastic, and there are no spoons & forks to use. You will be given plastic cellophanes which you can use to cover your bare hands!
Eating at larsian is MUST-try when you are in Cebu City just don’t expect too much on the ambiance. It’s smoky and it’s really noisy, you will be hearing vendors convincing customers to pick their stalls. 🙂
One of the popular dining establishments in Cebu City known for best value for money is Royal Concourse. It is know as the unlimited Crispy Pata Buffet. You can enjoy a variety of dishes from dimsum (siomai), eggnoodles (pancit), seafood choices of clams and mussels and hot-piping Bulalo (Cebuno called it pochero) for a very cheap price of 200php. 🙂
Crispy Pata Plate – ubos lagi
Buffet area. Presentation…okay lang but for 200php, who cares, the food taste good naman.
Again…200php with dessert. Super sulit 🙂
Royal Concourse is located at Gorordo Avenue, Cebu City, Cebu 6000 Philippines with Tel No. 032-3465345
Sutukil is a portmanteau of the three ways fish are cooked in eateries near the Mactan Shrine. Su is for sugba or grilled, tu is for tula or prepared into a soup and kil is for kilaw or turned into a raw fish salad. Since we arrived Mactan a little bit early we weren’t in the mood to eat heavy breakfast that is why we didn’t tried the sutukil . Nevertheless, we tried the restaurant’s other menu like;
We also ordered few pieces of pork bbq. As usual no photo. Naubos kasi kagad. 6 bottled water and 6 cups of rice.
You might ask….how much will you spend for a good meal in sutukil? At least P500 pesos or more if you come in as a group . It’s a bit pricey eating here. You should also keep in mind that the price of the seafood is different from the cost you pay for cooking it.
For our meal that day, we paid around 1000php plus. Mahal di ba?
Dried fish found in Tabo-an (Taboan) Public Market
A kilo of danggit that time was around 480php and a kilo of pusit was 420php. If you will be buying to bring it home as pasalubong, need not to worry if you’ll travel by plane, they use sealer machine, so your plastic bag is super sealed, fishy smell no more 🙂
Basta Otap Shamrock…true!
Shamrock is the tastiest otap I ever tasted. Gladly there is a Shamrock store near Crown Regency. Kaya we were able to buy 2 boxes of these goodies. I also love their rosquillos and hojaldres. 🙂
La fortuna bakery
This bakeshop is known for different varieties of tikoy, from plain white tikoy, tikoy ube, to the one with sesame seeds, that come in six dices per package. We had a quick bite of these small square cuts of two different kinds of tikoy. It’s good though I must say, the place was not that organize kasi, one side is an eatery, the other side naman is like a grocery with bookstore then the other side is bakeshop naman….hang gulo noh hahaha. Nevertheless, their tikoy is a must try. 🙂
So with all these, what am I missing…hmmm lechon. Too bad, when we went to CNT, wala ng lechon…naubusan kami. Super sikat ang lechon nila ha. 🙂
So that’s it pancit. Will do the our singapore adventure! Stay tuned
